Happy Sunday Friends! We will resume to normal blogging now. I’m done pouting over the fact that the hurricane dissipated on Thursday and we totally could have spent Thursday& Friday fishing.
Moving on: So, the “gym” in the Bahamas was lacking. Working out didn’t happen at all. Running didn’t happen either. I’m looking forward to getting back on track this week.
I’ve been wanting to join a gym for quite some time now. I kept putting it off and trying to forget about it because we really didn’t need to spend the extra money. I have a treadmill at home so I can’t really use the excuse that I needed to have access to a treadmill. Plus, how many times do people join a gym and then never use the membership. Heck, I’m guilty of that myself.twice. Two different gyms, two different times of my life.. two different reasons for joining. Same story; went for a little while then quit going.
I love running, but my knees do not. The wear & tear on my knees is not good, and I feel like I need to have an alternative to running. Of course I can do on-demand work outs in my living room, and I can buy workout DVDs and workout along side Jillian & Bob.. but let’s be realistic, those get old fast. It only takes doing those videos a few times regularly before you have the routine memorized, and you could practically lead the class.
I also want to learn how to swim (laps). I know how to swim, but I don’t know the different between the breast stroke,freestyle, butterfly, and isn’t there another kind of stroke? If I were to join the YMCA they have a pool @ the campus close to my office and I could swim there.
Chris & I went over to the Y today to check out the facility and to find out how much their membership fees are. Our choices in this area are Gold’s & the Y. Gold’s doesn’t have a pool, and it would cost more for both of us to join.
We liked the Y, the pool area was nice & clean. They have a pretty large variety of classes to choose from through out the day. They open at 5:30am, so I could go before work, if I wanted. They close at 10, so that’s plenty of time for Chris & I to get a gym sesh in together.
I want to join. I really do. The problem? I’m afraid to commit.
Another good thing about the Y is that there is no contract! So quitting is easier, lol. Just kidding. I don’t want to quit. I want to get into weight lifting, and the group classes. I’ve been interested in weight lifting for a while, but it’s kind of hard to do it in your living room.
I think we’ve decided to join. We’ll probably go some time this week to sign-up. I’m excited, and nervous all at the same time.
Do you have a gym membership? What’s your favorite thing about your gym?
Getting’ fit, and livin’ life!
